Leadership Excellence and Development Series

New for PSI - Project Management One Day Course

Regardless of job title, we're all project managers. Take the next step for your municipality and your career to improve your ability to lead and deliver projects.
Join us for this one-day, hands-on, interactive session to increase your ability to lead and deliver projects. You'll learn key principles that will help you deliver 
your projects, including leading factors for project success and failure. You'll learn how to develop plans to help you and your team stay on track as well as 
how to respond when (not if) changes occur. You'll get a better understanding of what agile project management is (and isn't) and why it's relevant to more
than just systems projects. You'll walk away with practical techniques to identify and manage risks so you can spend less time reacting to problems and more time 
avoiding them in the first pace.

Leading Teams II 

Targeted for those newly developing supervisors, team leads, managers or those that aspire to lead others in the future.  Employees often get promoted into a managerial role but rarely receive the appropriate training. When you align people and create an organization, where everyone works together in partnership for a common goal or direction, that organization becomes successful.  Inspire others to make a real difference at your workplace and to work toward a shared vision of positive change.
